Our Cancer sun is currently sextile Uranus and quincunx Saturn and I want to encourage you to let go of stuff you think you should hold on to, both big and small.
Maybe there’s a bottle of product you bought that you don’t really like. You’ve had it for so long. You keep thinking even though you don’t like it, you’ll use it up. Instead, it collects dust, takes up room, and makes you feel like you are failing when you look at it, or that you shouldn’t have bought it, or must keep it or you’re being wasteful. At some point, what you paid for it is irrelevant, because whatever the cost, keeping it is costing you more. Get rid of it.
You signed up for an online class, but are way behind in the lessons. Stacks of books are by your bedside. Your to do lists have sub lists. You keep meaning to call someone, to reorganize a closet, to learn how to do play an instrument …
Whether the stuff you feel you’ve signed up to do (or use) is connected to something you’ve bought, someone you care about it, something you think is great, or just an idea in your head, this is a good time to revaluate.
Get rid of stuff you don’t want. Move things out of the active space of your life, both physically and mentally unless you are actively using them i.e., keep one or two books out and the rest go on shelves, packed away or given away. It’s okay to take that online class off your to do list for now, and even to allow for the possibility that you never go back to it.
It’s okay if you never actually read every book you bought. Look at the books on your shelves as opportunities available to you and not required assignments.
Notice how and where you’ve fallen into the trap of creating responsibility and obligation and free yourself from it.
Time to reset.
There are core things you need to do, but we can bog ourselves down too easily with good intentions.
When you are holding on to stuff that you don’t want, and to ideas of who you are supposed to be that you don’t feel aligned with now, you are unnecessarily limiting yourself.
Healthy boundaries are good and that includes boundaries on what you require of yourself.
When you stay attached to relationships that aren’t healthy for you out of fear, insecurity, obligation, or the belief they can give you something you can’t get any other way, you are limiting your freedom and all you can be.
Your soul can always find another way. There is no revelatory experience that only comes along once. No other person holds the key to your self discovery. No material object intrinsically has power over you. You give it your power.
Embrace this opportunity to deeply nurture your aspirational self by letting go of stuff that doesn’t serve you, beliefs that limit you and trust that you can bring into your life who and what you need, when you’re ready.
